Seems each of the big 3 photo printer makers have similar 17", 24", 36-42", and 60-64" models, all similarly
priced. Once you get to 24" however, it becomes much more a problem of software than hardware. Check for
postscript compatibility, what, if any RIP is included or will you have to buy Postershop or something similar to
fully utilize the printer. Software can cost more than the hardware, so be careful. You can buy a lot of prints
for the 5 grand, so unless you plan to sell your work to help finance the next ones, investing the time, learning curve, and space for a large format printer may not be the best decision.
